Gastarbeiter: Frank Hinton

Frank Hinton, founder and editor-in-chief of that much-loved story contemplation, Metazen, has been one of my favorite writers and web personalities since I met Frank online in 2009. Frank’s chapbook “I don’t respect female expression” has just been published by Safety Third. I hold it in my hands now (yes, while I’m writing this: it is the kind of book that helps you grow an extra pair of hands. And more. I promise!) – and it is beautiful. Frank’s untitled poem that begins “Every night I walk my dog here” is also beautiful and strange. As is Frank, really. Hear how our first gastarbeiter from Canada, walks the dog & listen to my reading of one of the stories from Frank’s new collection here.
